MicroBurn 2019

12-16th September in Powys, Wales


Wow, after unprecedented levels of demand, memberships were sold out within a couple of hours of going on sale (compared to the usual couple of months!).

The only way to get a membership to MicroBurn 2019 now is if someone who has already bought a membership cannot attend (they can transfer it directly via the ticketing website, Quicket).

Hope to see you all in September!

Join us to co-create something magical in the Welsh hills for gathering, creation, workshops, dancing, laughter, guaranteed sunshine* and fun.

WHERE is MicroBurn?

The exact venue details will be released to Membership holders closer to the event, but the nearest train station is Caersws. Lifts are usually arranged to and from the station.

WHEN is MicroBurn?

MicroBurn 2019 starts at 2pm on Thursday the 12th September. Only those who have volunteered for Build should turn up before the Thursday afternoon. All the fun and magic will happen on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, then on Monday we pack up and make our way home. Everyone is encouraged to help with build and/or strike. A limited number of people will stay to complete Strike on Tuesday.

WHAT is at MicroBurn?

There is a number of structures (yurts, a marquee, a large bell tent and a stone chapel building) all of which are available for workshops, performances and socialising. There is a Welfare yurt plus a Bar structure. There are also showers and compost toilets. Participants at MicroBurn bring their own tents or live-in vehicles to sleep in.


That means we’re here to practice the principles of Burning Man (“Say what?” you say? Here: http://microburn.org/core-principles) so most importantly for us that means:
1) YOU are the event. What you bring is what you get. Bring your art. Bring your style. Bring your love and share it around. Participation is the name of the game and YOU ARE IT. We are a fully functioning event and there are many tasks to be completed so that the wheels don’t fall off. Wanna do something? Get involved!

2) This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. Everything you bring, you take it back with you. If you see trash or something that’s out of place lying around, pick it up and put it where it belongs. Let’s leave the farm as shiny and delightful as we find it. We LOVE the Farm and if something is going to damage the environment there, please don’t bring it.

3) EVERYONE pays for a Membership. Including the organisers. This is because we are not a commercial event. Everyone is a volunteer – no one profits from The MicroBurn. Every single penny that’s paid by you goes into the event and the year-round process to keep it going.

We can’t wait!!

*sunshine may only be visible from inside your mind.


Burning Man Project is not a producer or organizer of MicroBurn, and Burning Man Project accepts no liability arising out of or in connection with MicroBurn.


MicroBurn is run by YOU and everyone is asked to do one or two shifts . There will also be volunteering opportunities at the event itself. You MUST have ALREADY got a ticket to participate.

So whether LNT, the bar, or greeting at the gate floats your boat. Or maybe welfare and rainbow rangering is more your thing, sign up to the volunteer schedule now!

Email volunteers@microburn.org with any queries.
